No way in a hundred attempts could Hollywood recreate that without someone getting killed...at least without special effects.
This time it seemed to work out OK, but I have to question the mental brain power of someone that swerves into on coming traffic with their semi truck to "avoid" an incident in front of them. Not smart, if you ask me.

If he'd had his belt on, he'd have ended up still sat in the relatively untouched side of the cab - remember he was coming towards the camera, so would have been sat on the right (looking at the screen).

I agree - better to rear end the truck in front of him. How is it that no one with the dash cam commented!!!!! I think I would have let out a bit of a scream!!!
Are you sure that truck in front wasn't making a poorly judged left hand turn? Looks like the shoulder widens to a road on the left at that point.
As for a comment from the dash cam guy, in situations like that I have found a sort of surreal slowing of time happens and you don't really consciously react much till it is all over. Not that it happens to me on a daily basis ya understand.
